12. Start Somewhere

Tonight
by TobyMac



 

Last night, everything was movin so fast
I could barely keep track
Of my offenses or your defenses
In hindsight, I woulda, coulda, shoulda not gone there
But left without a word to spare
Was it your offenses or my defensiveness?

Thats got me thinkin that were never gonna get it right
I wanna straighten this before the sun goes down tonight
If I could only fight the bitterness I feel inside
This thing is eatin me alive

Well Im right here
And youre right there
And God knows weve got to start somewhere
Cause Im messed up
And youre broken
And those shots we fired are still smokin

Im tossin and turnin on the things Id undo
As I wrestle with the painful truth
My sleep escapes me as guilt berates me
Exhausted, the memories are drawing so near
I can see it like a world premiere
When did my objective lose all objectiveness?

If I need you, and you need me
How can you turn your back and just leave me?
When Im right here, and youre right there
And God knows weve got to start somewhere

I said some things that I regret
And if I could, Id take em back
If I could turn my words around
You wouldnt hear a sound

But here I am, and there you are
The space between us is not so far
Im reaching out my hand in love
Before the fading sun, forgive me for what Ive done




Behind the Song:
Its about spousal struggle. Any time youre in love with somebody youre going to bang heads from time to time; youre going to have your points of struggle. I dont know how many times Ive been lying in bed, eyes wide open, sweating it out and thinking, How am I going to make this right? Just regretting things Ive said, the words I chose, and thinking about how to approach making that right. Then comes the resolve, the apology, and forgiveness. The song is all about that moment where youre not quite there yet, and youre sweating getting there. I love that song; its one of my favorite songs on the record. Its a cool perspective on confrontation and reconciliation.

Musically, the song has a Latin flavor, so weve got live horns on that. My favorite day recording of the whole record was the horn day. I love horns, because theyre so full of flavor. And when it comes to Latin music, horns are always prevalent. We used some of the guys from Salvador and some of the guys from Denver and the Mile High Orchestra. We had a good time. - tobyMac
